Heucherellas are a cross between Tiarellas and Heucheras. As expected these are woodland plants and shade lovers, liking slightly more moist growing conditions than do Heucheras. The cross provides the vigorous spreading growth of Tiarellas and the fascinating leaf shapes, with the incredible array of colours of the Heucheras. ‘Alabama Sunrise’ is a classic of this cross, displaying vigour, toughness and performance. Heucherella ‘Alabama Sunrise’ changes colour with the seasons! The deeply cut foliage, in spring to mid summer, is gold with red veins. In late summer, the leaves evolve to green with red veins. In autumn, the older foliage turns orange pink. As a H. villosa cross, you can expect good heat and humidity tolerance.
Grow Heucherella ‘Alabama Sunrise’ in part shade for best results and colours. Protect from intense direct sunlight particularly afternoon sun. Prefers moist but well drained, humus rich soils. Water and feed occasionally with slow release fertiliser. Easy care. Hardy. 0.30 x 0.50m
